Re: Smoot wants Vikings to trade for Gardner

maybe it's because last year he talked about being a core redskin. He said he would stay with the team last year. then he goes for the first offer.

Re: Smoot wants Vikings to trade for Gardner

I saw Smoot at his introduction and he didn't look nearly as comfortable or happy as he was here. I know that he's gonna be a very rich man because of the deal, but I think he still would rather be here, money aside. I think he really connected with the fans over the last two years and loves the area, but money talks. Would any of us done anything different in his shoes? I doubt it.

Re: Smoot wants Vikings to trade for Gardner

I still love SMoot luckily he went to my home state Vikings so I can still watch him, Vikes are may second favorite team (except when they play the Skins). Guess it comes from having to deal with these Packer Fans all the time.

SECOND FAVORITE TEAM?!?!

There is no such thing.

Re: Smoot wants Vikings to trade for Gardner

So Smoot turned his back on the Redskins? That's what you all think? Maybe he did. You know what, though, the Skins deserve it. They're my favortie team, but the front office is one of the worst in the NFL.

I don't think Chris Samuels sees it that way. He's got 15 million reasons to think otherwise.

Promising big money and paying what a player thinks he's worth are two different animals. The Skins offered Pierce and Smoot generous signing bonuses, but other teams were able to offer more salary in the first three years of the contract.

Now if you're talking about LaVar Arrington's situation, there's the little issue of Arrington and his agents signing a contract that made him the second-highest paid linebacker in the league-- even without that extra $6.5 million he thought he heard someone mention.

And I think Champ Bailey's contract demands and subsequent performance on the field in Denver speaks for itself. There's a reason folks in Denver are already calling him "Chump"-- Pro Bowler or not.

Re: Smoot wants Vikings to trade for Gardner

2 things that I can guarantee the Vikes O will be better than ours and our D will be better than theres. I have no problem with Smoot its part of the business and with this team I have come to accept it. He is a great player and will do just fine with the Vikes. So who is gonna step up in Smooty's place. Harris I think not, Wilds don't make me laugh. Oh how bout Ade "has gotta go" Jimoh. Right now there is no one on this team that can take Smoot's place. So, now we may draft a cb and we still do not have any recievers. Well what are you gonna do with this team.

true but on nfl total access he wasn't really supportive of the team saying he has to do whats best for Fred Smoot reffering to himself in the third person. i am mad because it took the vikes a day to sign him and we couldn't in 3 months even when we tried to give him money that was close to the vikes

Re: Smoot wants Vikings to trade for Gardner

In reference to the third person thing, I agree. I cannot stand it when a player does that. He refered to himself in the third person 4 times during that one interview. I loved the way that he played in Washington and do not fault him for signing with the Vikes. It pisses me off, but I do not fault him for that. I do fault him however, for his character. He is not the type of person that I would want in my locker room if I were coach. Comparing this years interviews to last off season he seems to have grown a little too cocky. It is almost as if he thinks that he is bigger than the game. No player will ever be bigger than the game! There will always be someone better. If the Vikes is where he want's to be than good riddance. I missed him yesterday, but it is time to move on.

Okay, so he got a big signing bonus, you think he'll see the end of his deal? If you do you're flat out naive.
